I finally took pictures of the gorgeous boot cuffs GeneralJinjur made for me! (I took some of the cuffs on my desk and never, we'll see how those came out for colour...)

Here they are, lovely and purple and cuddly and perfectly sized!


Lovely and thoughtful extra: Bookmarks! For me to embellish. Perfect for all of those lovely stamps I've been getting. Ha!


And another one so you can see the cuddlyness's stirrups (they will always stay in place!) and some tea that smells very good:


Wore them today. Thank you so much Jinjur, I love them!

Basically copying my post from the OWS board here...

I received a huge package from our esteemed organizer rscowtown. Thank you so much, too, Laurel! Can I brag a little bit and show off everything here? Everything in this case includes fabric for OWS 121, fabric for the December OPS and jelly rolls (again fabric) for a personal swap (I'll post in OPS, too) but as there wasn't any talk about what goes where except for the jellies you'll just have to look at everything here... Wink

Okay, so here we go. Out of the first bag came this: A nice yellowish daisy print and seashells (both wanting to be lining for a tote, I think), a brown and aqua paisley, and Very Hungry Caterpillar stickers!




And the other bag had many many more pieces of fabric: Seersucker daisies, a bright and friendly purple and orange pattern, and so much more!




One of two FQs, my favourite, these paper lanterns just make me smile!


Merida fabric, so cool! (May get to keep that one as the girls don't know the movie yet Wink)


The stack of patchwork squares. Rectangles. Anyway good sized pieces in many shades of pink, might end up as doll clothes. If I listen to what my daughters say.


And to show off everything, here are the jelly rolls!


Those must be turned into either rainbow skirts or dresses or dolly clothes again, the 4yo was very strict.

Laurel, thank you so much!

And after a little break of eight hours in which I was just goofing off quite unproductively in bed (the 4yo woke up and wanted to sleep with me) I'm back with the rest of the pictures from the other package!

Happy New Year! Not only did I have an enjoyable New Years Eve night, the morning was also rather fine because I received not one but two claims (and one of those was a twofer!).

First there's my final Round 120 claim by Alliekat914. She put together a great Mickey Mouse party package, see:



There are napkins, snackboxes, and stationary stuff! Sadly missing already is the Mickey Mouse figurine/action figure/now kiddie toy my girls have immediately carried away, I'll try to add a picture when I find him.



Stamps! And sticky notes even, yay! Those are always appreciated around here.




And a calendar! I'll be using this either for the girls, or as a goal achiever thingy for myself. Probably for myself, as our week starts with Monday, but I might.

Thanks so much Allie, we love it all!

Okay, while I've been sitting here with the little one, waiting for the others to get up... We are allowed to wake them up anytime after 7.30; she got up at 5, but with her dad who had to go to work. I got to stay in bed until 6.30. Nearly. Yay!

But what I was going to say was here are the first pictures I took, the very very first one with the little one's hand trying to get at the pieces, and the 4yo saying "Dankeschn!"


Look at all that incredible detail! Although I didn't get any detail shots yet, I'll have to wait until noone's around.

I'll put this on the wall in the craft room, this one is not going to lose any pieces! Lea was playing with it as long as she could, but had to hunt for her little sister, who made off with the icecream cone and the lollipop playing pretend at licking them, too. The butterfly went for a little flutter, too, of course. The backs are velcro, so the pieces are very secure on their board. It's carpet tile, right? Very sturdy, and works great!


Saying Thank you!

Lou, you'll have to make a separate post for this, it's perfect! Thanks again and again! It is certainly making my girls very happy, but I'd say that I'm even happier. We love it!

I knew I had forgotten something! Yesterday I received a pack of awesome fleecy swiffer duster covers from lydiaharper! They are already in use, but I was quick to take pictures in a sunny (!) spot on my kitchen table!




And in front of a (then still) dusty shelf!


As you can see I got a great colourful set of four, plus an original (?) fuzzy thing and lydia did the right thing and included the plastic handle thing, too, so I didn't have to search our closets for the old one. Smiley

Thank you so much Lydia, I love these, and I love that I can just throw them into the laundry when I'm through with dusting and use the again the next time! Because we have lots of dusty shelves here, and if I were a fan of dusting I'd go through loads of these things in a year!

I just yelled "BUELLER? BUELLER?" in the Dec. OPS discussion room. I was gonna claim someone, and discovered that no one's signed up (yet).

You were sayin'?



Ah, I'll be over, too. Just need to get my OWS claim out of the door on Monday or Tuesday (ahem. cough. *late*) and then I'll come play!

Buuut I also received my first OWS 121 claim already, and this was part of it! Mermaidcafe sent me an Etsy gift card, and I went and redeemed it the same night! Here are the other two patterns I bought:





I love them! Thanks so much mermaidcafe, I really love these patterns. Next up are Sherlock and Rocky Horror Picture Show, and then maybe I'll actually even get started on one of them!  Cheesy

And then there was an awesome supply package from hayatiggs, so here we go:

A set of neutral ink pads (black, white, 2 greys, 2 browns) and the cutest little stamp set might even get to use that tomorrow already as I have to hand in two Christmas presents on Monday morning and am trying to figure out a smallish pattern for a pendant...


A calendar date stamp! I've been wanting one of these for ages! I had a plain one (just the date) which ran out in 2014, I think, and now I have this baby:


Closeup of the text part: So cute, so tiny! This might even work for a few things for the doll house. Perfect.


Hayatiggs, thank you so much! I love my new toys (must keep away from the kids for another few years, or else will have to learn how to reglue stamps and fix those little machines... they ARE intrerested, but happily can most often be distracted with simpler versions of things that won't break so easily or use washable ink, for example...) and will try to not just stash them away but also use them.

By the way, the background in these pictures is part of the packages' other half, the OWS claim! Right over here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=440896.msg5356233#msg5356233
(And next year I'll memorize how to make links pretty!)

Ooooh, pretty pendants! Okay, and lots of other great things, but I've been focussed on jewelry these days. Speaking of which, I received some great supplies from hayatiggs! (I bet she thought they were for paper crafting, but of course I will use some of it for jewelry!)

Everything!


Cute little glittery owls that I had to promise to stick on something for my little ones:


More stickers: Labels and butterflies, and sticky notes (which I use for lists, bookmarks, in my calendar, ... everywhere!), and two slim rolls of washi tape, blue polkadots and teal metallic squares!


Closeup of the papers (my favourites in front), and here comes the jewelry part (I told you!) I think some of these might be a great background for a pendant. The blue dots are more purple, I think, which I absolutely adore, and that one will definitely turn into two divider pages for my planner as it is so I'll get to see it everday. Smiley Maybe the chevron, too, I love the newsprint (vintage advertisements) and the teal is so soft...


Thanks so much hayatiggs, I love everything! But weirdly enough my favourite is that single sheet of polkadot/newsprint. The simple things, right?

Oooh, great haul! Me too, I received 4 claims, and I get to post two of them here!

First we have a lovely felt christmas tree with ornaments from Treemoon for my little ones to play with. And she made a boatload of ornaments, you'll see! (Not exactly apologising for the amount of pictures, but thee are a few...)


Yay presents! All neatly wrapped, and extra felt for even more ornaments! Lea might be allowed to use my good sewing scissors for this...


Another extra: Two cute & colourful dolly blankets. The large hearts have glitter! We may have to add some glitter paint to the second one.


Okay, on to the actual claim: Here are all of the lovingly decorated lovely ornaments:


I skipped the picture of the tree flat on the sofa to give you the little one proudly presenting her handiwork:

See how I put the tree on the backside of the pegboard? While it goes per-fect-ly with our Eighties kitchen (soon...) it is supposed to lean against a wall... a white wall...

This was several hours later, the little one already dressed for bed, having escaped their bedroom again, and the big one ignoring that it was way after their bedtime because she had to "finish the tree" first. Those ornaments have been everywhere on the tree, and in their wooden box, some already off exploring... very busy! Wink


We love this! Thank you so much Treemoon, you have added a whole lot of pre-Christmas joy to our house!
